Infiniti and Hyundai Increase Prices Mid-Year

March 31, 2011

Infiniti Price IncreasesDomestic car manufacturers can be counted on to increase prices a few times over the course of a model year. Though small, they can add up.

TrueDelta has been keeping track of the price increases so far this year and they've found GM, Ford and Chrysler haven't increased prices nearly as often - or as much as they have in years past.

Instead, foreign car manufacturers have been more likely to raise prices.

Though largely incidental, Hyundai bumped invoice prices by $14 and some destination charges by $30 to $50.

The most aggressive case so far: Infiniti.

The price of the most popular Infiniti models has gone up about $1,000. The QX56 SUV went up $2,000.

You can avoid these price increases if you find cars manufactured before the price increase on dealer lots.

It will still have the old MSRP sticker and thus the old price, so you'll pay less for it.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, RydeShopper, and CarsDirect are the best way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
